Event description

Description

What?! A book club for scripts? These sessions are primarily aimed at writers, but all stage, film, and TV writers & lovers are welcome!

This event is the second in a series themed after the 'road' genre:

Please keep in mind that for many scripts, if you don't have the same copy as everyone else, you may not have the same text. It wont necessarily break the experience for you, but it may make it difficult for you to follow along from time to time.

How it works:
Every 3-5 weeks, we'll meet to discuss and read from the selected script, so you'll want to have read it before we get together. Facilitation will be minimal, allowing the group to discuss what really excites them. So, come with a talking point and an excerpt you would like to have read out.

When you're reading the script at home, do consider these questions:

  • How is this genre effected by it's form? And vice versa?
  • How does this script represent the genre?
  • What is the emotional journey the author is trying to take us on?
  • Does the script stay true to form or is it more experimental?
  • What can you learn from this script as a writer?
  • How can you see the script being produced on stage or screen?
  • How has the author chosen to communicate with the script's production collaborators?
  • What are the script's main themes?
  • Who is the script's main audience?
  • How has the author differentiated each character via the text?
  • What is the central plot? Is there a B or C plot?
  • Where does the author employ the most dramatic tension?
  • How does the author use visual story-telling?
  • How does the author use subtext to tell the story?

As this is a new endeavour, your opinions and suggestions on how the group runs are encouraged!

See you there!
